Remember “Runaway,” Kanye West’s style-over-substance short film that dropped just before My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy? According to The New York Observer, Mr. West is getting ready to shoot another-nother film somewhere in the Middle East.
Sources tell The Observer that Mr. West sent members of his team to meet with film companies and government officials based out of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Doha, Qatar to explore the idea of a production. A number of local municipal officials and film companies are said to be engaged in what was characterized as a heated bidding war for the contracts involved in bringing Mr. West’s vision to life.
Kanye’s team is moving to the region for a few weeks to scout actors from the region and get a feel for the culture. No details on the content of the film have been released, but it’s safe to say it’ll probably look something like this.
